Habitats?
Ecological or environmental area where abiotic and biotic
conditions allow particular species of animal, plant or other type
of organism to live.
Not a biotope! geographic area with uniform environmental conditions
where certain biological communities live
Habitat information is important for sustainable management of
the environment, including human activities
Habitat types classification – e.g. EU nature information system
(EUNIS) habitat maps
Seabed Habitat maps serve many purposes
design of ecologically coherent Marine Protected Area (MPA)
networks
species distribution modelling
establishing monitoring programmes for seabed habitats
developing sensitivity maps & informing maritime spatial planning (MSP)
indispensable for MS to fulfil obligations under MSFD where full coverage
of seabed predominant habitats of all European seas is required.

Checkpoints Results - General
Which checkpoints challenges require habitats data and
maps most?
Marine Protected Areas - coherence
Windfarm siting – sensitive habitats at target locations?
Oil platform spill likely hood that sensitive habitats (coastal or other) would
be affected
Fisheries impact extent of fisheries impact on the sea floor
EMODnet provides a pan-European broadscale habitat map
covering all sea-basins
Arctic:
Some habitat information for specific Arctic parts of the Northeast
Atlantic are available via different European initiatives, e.g. EUNIS and
MAREANO project

Checkpoints Results – General (2)
Atlantic:
We need better availability of habitat-related sample point data:
except for UK Marine recorder UK and Irish waters, such data are
difficult or impossible to access elsewhere.
Lack of habitat maps giving full biological detail (i.e. maps from
surveys), even in the coastal zone. EMODnet broadscale map provides
full coverage but with insufficient thematic resolution.
Many deep sea offshore habitats are under-studied and poorly
inventoried.
lack of consistent, region-wide surveys of biological data on marine
species across taxa and trophic groups.
especially the abyssal plain is under-represented, with available biological
data being more restricted to surface or shallow water regions in and
around coastal areas

Checkpoints Results – General (3)
Black Sea
availability of data/info on habitat extent is only “partly adequate” in
terms of data delivery mechanisms, easy to find, INSPIRE services and
pricing, and “not adequate “ in terms of responsiveness.
Mediterranean
For habitat characterization and habitat extent input datasets (e.g.
Posidonia oceanica, Coralligenous and Maerl habitats)
availability of datasets are “not adequate” in terms of pricing, data
delivery mechanisms and responsiveness.
appropriateness if the datasets is “partly adequate” TO “not
adequate” – in particular temporal coverage as well as vertical
coverage, horizontal and temporal validity are “not adequate”.

Assessing fisheries impact
Arctic
habitat information could be obtained from various sources: e.g.
working groups within the Arctic Council provide some kind of
information on important areas within the Arctic area.
Due to privacy issues high-spatial resolution data on fishing impact is
not readily available for general use.
Specific organisations that were addressed to identify accessible data
did not reply.
Coding of the presented unit of effort data is not always clear, making
it not possible to use the data.
Information on fishing impact is scarce and mostly on low-spatial level
resolution it was not possible to generate an overall overview of
fishing impact in the Arctic area.

Fisheries impact (2)
Atlantic
comprehensive/recent datasets on bottom fishing effort and intensity are
a series of maps generated in 2016 by the ICES Working Group on Spatial
Fisheries Data (WGSFD) from VMS data coupled with log book data. Maps
cover the OSPAR area from 2009 onwards and their resolution 0.05
degrees (~5 km).
To assess fisheries impact on seabed habitats, this resolution is
significantly lower than that of the broadscale habitat maps provided by
the EMODnet Seabed Habitat lot (250m).
Quality assurance is non-existent and this needs to be rectified.
Baltic
Fisheries data (VMS-data) are spatially and temporally restricted, they are
only available at a scale of grid-cell size of approx. 10 km x 5km for the
years 2009-2013 yearly.
For fishery impact assessment, species data are considered available and
adequate, but variable in quality, e.g., variable prediction confidence in
modelled data and substantial extrapolations due to lack of ecological
data in some areas.

Assessing fisheries impact (3)
Mediterranean
VMS maps
only cover EU MS but data is not available for some countries and only
partially available for other MS.
Time series do not always cover the same period in the different countries.
Greatest limitation: incomplete spatial and temporal coverage of the data
sets. As a result the change of the level of disturbance of trawling on the
seabed could only be calculated on a short time period.
AIS data
have higher spatial coverage than VMS data (incl. also non-EU vessels)
while in available time period there are no data for a part of the fishing
fleets (obligations were gradually extended over the years) they allow to get a
more spatial complete coverage of the overall Mediterranean basin compared
to VMS.

  • 4. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 4 Checkpoints Results - General Which checkpoints challenges require habitats data and maps most? Marine Protected Areas - coherence Windfarm siting – sensitive habitats at target locations? Oil platform spill likely hood that sensitive habitats (coastal or other) would be affected Fisheries impact extent of fisheries impact on the sea floor EMODnet provides a pan-European broadscale habitat map covering all sea-basins Arctic: Some habitat information for specific Arctic parts of the Northeast Atlantic are available via different European initiatives, e.g. EUNIS and MAREANO project
  • 5. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 5 Checkpoints Results – General (2) Atlantic: We need better availability of habitat-related sample point data: except for UK Marine recorder UK and Irish waters, such data are difficult or impossible to access elsewhere. Lack of habitat maps giving full biological detail (i.e. maps from surveys), even in the coastal zone. EMODnet broadscale map provides full coverage but with insufficient thematic resolution. Many deep sea offshore habitats are under-studied and poorly inventoried. lack of consistent, region-wide surveys of biological data on marine species across taxa and trophic groups. especially the abyssal plain is under-represented, with available biological data being more restricted to surface or shallow water regions in and around coastal areas
  • 6. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 6 Checkpoints Results – General (3) Black Sea availability of data/info on habitat extent is only “partly adequate” in terms of data delivery mechanisms, easy to find, INSPIRE services and pricing, and “not adequate “ in terms of responsiveness. Mediterranean For habitat characterization and habitat extent input datasets (e.g. Posidonia oceanica, Coralligenous and Maerl habitats) availability of datasets are “not adequate” in terms of pricing, data delivery mechanisms and responsiveness. appropriateness if the datasets is “partly adequate” TO “not adequate” – in particular temporal coverage as well as vertical coverage, horizontal and temporal validity are “not adequate”.
  • 7. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 7 Assessing fisheries impact Arctic habitat information could be obtained from various sources: e.g. working groups within the Arctic Council provide some kind of information on important areas within the Arctic area. Due to privacy issues high-spatial resolution data on fishing impact is not readily available for general use. Specific organisations that were addressed to identify accessible data did not reply. Coding of the presented unit of effort data is not always clear, making it not possible to use the data. Information on fishing impact is scarce and mostly on low-spatial level resolution it was not possible to generate an overall overview of fishing impact in the Arctic area.
  • 8. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 8 Fisheries impact (2) Atlantic comprehensive/recent datasets on bottom fishing effort and intensity are a series of maps generated in 2016 by the ICES Working Group on Spatial Fisheries Data (WGSFD) from VMS data coupled with log book data. Maps cover the OSPAR area from 2009 onwards and their resolution 0.05 degrees (~5 km). To assess fisheries impact on seabed habitats, this resolution is significantly lower than that of the broadscale habitat maps provided by the EMODnet Seabed Habitat lot (250m). Quality assurance is non-existent and this needs to be rectified. Baltic Fisheries data (VMS-data) are spatially and temporally restricted, they are only available at a scale of grid-cell size of approx. 10 km x 5km for the years 2009-2013 yearly. For fishery impact assessment, species data are considered available and adequate, but variable in quality, e.g., variable prediction confidence in modelled data and substantial extrapolations due to lack of ecological data in some areas.
  • 9. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results Habitats 9 Assessing fisheries impact (3) Mediterranean VMS maps only cover EU MS but data is not available for some countries and only partially available for other MS. Time series do not always cover the same period in the different countries. Greatest limitation: incomplete spatial and temporal coverage of the data sets. As a result the change of the level of disturbance of trawling on the seabed could only be calculated on a short time period. AIS data have higher spatial coverage than VMS data (incl. also non-EU vessels) while in available time period there are no data for a part of the fishing fleets (obligations were gradually extended over the years) they allow to get a more spatial complete coverage of the overall Mediterranean basin compared to VMS.
